Check Up & Clean

1. Regular Check up & Clean

Most dental problems can be easily avoided by regular dental checks and cleaning every 6 months. If you have one of the following problems: bad breath, bleeding gums, and infections, it is one of the ways your body is telling you to step up the game in keeping your oral health checked. The services include:

  • Full Oral Examination
    The dentist conducts a thorough check regarding your oral health and will discuss your treatment plan with you.
  • Cleaning Process
    The dentist clean any plaque surrounding your teeth and gums.
  • Fluoride Treatment
    Applying the fluoride at the end of the clean to strengthen the enamel of your teeth. By doing so regularly, it helps to prevent and protect the teeth from decay.
  • Additional Standard Practice :
    The dentist will take X-rays to check any decay between the teeth for every 2 years.

The Duration for This Treatment

First visit: 1 Hour
Subsequent 6 monthly visit: 30 minutes

Why Do We Need Regular Dental Check-Up And Clean Every 6 Months?

  • To remove stains, built-up plaque and tartar that cause bad breath.
  • To detect diseases, abnormalities and early signs of decay.
  • To reduce problems of oral health.

2. Deep Cleaning

When your gums have been infected by gum disease (also known as periodontal disease), there may be deep gum pockets around the affected gum areas. These deep gum pockets often trap plaque (a film of food on the teeth) and tartar (hard and sticky form of plaque) on the root surface of the teeth.

Even though you make extra effort to keep your gums and teeth clean by thorough brushing and flossing daily, the deeper parts of the deep gum pockets often still have plaque and tartar which need a professional deep clean. The deep clean usually includes :

  • Full Oral Examination
    The dentist will do a thorough check regarding your oral health and will discuss the treatment plan if needed.
  • Applying Numb Gel
    Prior to giving Local Anesthesia, The dentist will apply numb gel to make patient feel more comfortable.
  • Cleaning
    Using both manual and the ultrasonic-scaling to remove the plaque and tartar build up from the deeper parts of the affected gums.

The Duration for This Treatment

4x Visit : Each visit for 30 minutes

Why Do We Need Deep Cleaning?

  • The deep cleaning procedure may need to be done initially to help reduce the gum infection. Once the deep cleaning is completed, the gum health may be maintained by general cleaning and supplemented by deep cleaning as needed in the future.
  • Deep Cleaning is recommended for those who have gum disease or periodontal issues. A deep cleaning is usually done per teeth quadrant (from 4-8 teeth per session) under Local Anesthesia.
